If I, as an upstanding Irisman, were to meet Rob (hint: Rob is the unwashed Scot w/ the beard...wait, that doesn't narrow it down very much, does it?)

The word "cunning" reminds me of a joke:

Q: What is the difference between the Ringling Bro.s Circus and the Rockettes chorus line?

A: The circus is a cunning array of stunts...

The version I know it was a magician's wand and a policeman's truncheon (nightstick to my American brothers).

(One's used for cunning stunts...)

Curious, somewhat as an aside, how was that movie received in Scotland? I understand it met with some bad feelings in England as it depicted most of them as war-mongering, deceitful scum.

Actually it went down extremely well in Scotland for the very reasons you cite - i.e that the English are depicted as war-mongering, deceitful scum who would stab an honest Scot in the back as quick as look at him.

It also appealed to the Scots love of being noble losers, defeated only by circumstance and duplicity.

I think that is the exact reason why it went over so well in Boston. Well, that was before the Red Sox finally won a World Series. Since then we've been kind of lost, no longer being the "loveable losers" we'd been for 90 years.

Forgot how funny that scene was.

Why did God invent whiskey?

So the Irish wouldn't take over the world.
